Just when I think that w.Caesar’s arrogance and disdain for democracy and sincerity has hit a limit, he [and his cabal of handlers] surpasses himself. Despite plummeting approval ratings, this spills forth from his mouth two days ago in Cleveland [David Frum must be grinning with the theft.]:
“The last three years have tested our resolve. The fighting has been tough. The enemy we face has proved to be brutal and relentless. We’re adapting our approach to reflect the hard realities on the ground. And the sacrifice being made by our young men and women who wear our uniform has been heartening and inspiring.
“The terrorists who are setting off bombs in mosques and markets in Iraq share the same hateful ideology as the terrorists who attacked us on September the 11th, 2001, those who blew up commuters in London and Madrid, and those who murdered tourists in Bali, or workers in Riyadh, or guests at a wedding in Amman, Jordan. In the war on terror we face a global enemy — and if we were not fighting this enemy in Iraq, they would not be idle. They would be plotting and trying to kill Americans across the world and within our own borders. Against this enemy, there can be no compromise. So we will fight them in Iraq, we’ll fight them across the world, and we will stay in the fight until the fight is won.“
And there was this Winston Churchill guy once. He and millions of others fought Nazi fascism and a jugular threat to all democracy. I think he once said:
“We will never surrender. We will never give up. We will fight them on the beach. We will fight them in the country. We will fight them in the city. We will fight them in the alleys. We will fight them to the edge of the empire, but we will never, never, Never, Never, NEVER SURRENDER!”
The spin, the spin, the spin, the spin…
